Washington Capitals Captain Alex Ovechkin tweeted on Monday that it was, “Great to be home in DC!”
Ovi has been busy playing hockey in the KHL for Dynamo with Caps teammate Nicklas Backstrom. Ovechkin also had a pretty exciting New Year’s Eve when he proposed to Russian tennis player Maria Kirilenko and she said yes.
Caps Mike Vogel caught up with Ovi at the airport on his return to DC.
